Plan your numbering series

Plan your numbering series

Before you start modeling, it is a good idea to plan the numberingprocess of assigning position numbers to parts, cast units, assemblies, or reinforcement

In Tekla Structures, the position numbers assigned in the numbering are shown in marks and templates, for example.

prefixes and start numbers you will use for the entire project. Careful planning prevents numbering conflicts.

To save time, include the numbering seriesset of identifiers defined by the user, based on which Tekla Structures compares parts, assemblies, cast units, or reinforcement with each other during the numbering and gives position numbers

Numbering series is defined by a prefix and a start number.

The user can, for example, allocate separate numbering series to different phases or part types.

in the default part properties for each type of part before you start modeling.

You may want to omit the part prefix for minor parts, such as plates. If you do this, ensure that you assign a Start number for that numbering series so that it will not overlap other parts.

Example

One way to plan the numbering series is to create a table:
